SHEET MUSIC COPIES! Here is a link to the sheet music for the auditions:

Guy’s Audition Songs

Girl’s Audition Songs

MORE AUDITION INFO! If you want to listen to the audition songs, go to Spotify (if you don’t have it, you can make an account for free), type “Addams Family” in the search bar and the show CD will come up. The cover art is a black and white drawing of the family with a burgundy picture framed border around it.

Here are the pieces with their start and end times (there is a tad of lead in music before each song):

Lowest Guy’s Piece: ”When You’re an Addams”-Start Time 0:24 seconds, End Time 1:09.

Higher Guy’s Piece: One Normal Night (If you want Lucas, you should sing this one)-Start Time 1:35, End Time 2:05.

Lowest Girl’s Piece: Death is Just Around the Corner

Start Time 1:01, End Time 1:48.

Higher Girl’s Piece: Pulled-Start Time 2:04, and then the piece goes until the end of the song.

Advice: Choose the song that you think “sells” you/your voice the best or if one of these characters really appeals to you, select that song.

But, come prepared to sing both songs. The VAST MAJORITY will not be asked (and not being asked doesn’t mean you won’t make the first round cut), but if we ask you to and you can, that could be a good thing for you!

The sheet music is now available in the choir room! Work hard on the auditions songs, memorize them, sing in front of a mirror, for your family and friends or your voice teacher!

Here are the pieces with their start and end times (there is a tad of lead in music before each song):

Lowest Guy’s Piece: ”When You’re an Addams”-Start Time 0:24 seconds, End Time 1:09.

Higher Guy’s Piece: One Normal Night (If you want Lucas, you should sing this one)-Start Time 1:35, End Time 2:05.

Lowest Girl’s Piece: Death is Just Around the Corner

Start Time 1:01, End Time 1:48.

Higher Girl’s Piece: Pulled-Start Time 2:04, and then the piece goes until the end of the song.

Advice: Choose the song that you think “sells” you/your voice the best or if one of these characters really appeals to you, select that song.

But, come prepared to sing both songs. The VAST MAJORITY will not be asked (and not being asked doesn’t mean you won’t make the first round cut), but if we ask you to and you can, that could be a good thing for you!

The sheet music is now available in the choir room! Work hard on the auditions songs, memorize them, sing in front of a mirror, for your family and friends or your voice teacher!

REMINDER–MEETING TODAY! There is a meeting today (Wed) for all students traveling to NYC this spring. The meeting will take place immediately after school, and will last at least 30-45 minutes (best guess!) I am going to present a list of EIGHT Broadway Musicals and show a trailer for each. We will then vote on which shows to see! Majority will rule!! I don’t typically give you all a choice like this so take advantage of it if you can. There are just too many great shows for me to choose solely by myself! Sorry for being sort of last minute, but we need to get the tickets booked NOW for best choice of seats!

REMINDER! We still need of kleenex tissue paper and band aids for student use. Please consider donating some! You earn +2 points per box of either item.

Who knows, you may need them someday!
